Ratos and other owners considering diversifying ownership of Aibel
Aibel’s owners, including Ratos AB (publ) (“Ratos”), are considering the possibility of diversifying the company’s ownership, preferably through a listing on the Oslo Børs, in order to further accelerate its transition into the renewable energy industry. However, a final decision has not been taken.
Ratos currently owns 32% of Aibel. The other owners are Ferd (50%) and Sixth AP Fund (18%).
“Aibel has undergone an outstanding transition over the past five years with Mads Anderson as CEO. Its operations are stable, and half of the order book now comprises projects related to offshore wind power and electrification. The company is in a transitional period, and the Board and owners believe it would be advantageous to further improve the company’s financial conditions for continued growth,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Business Area Manager at Ratos and Board member of Aibel.
